Another silly question

sorry if this is too much information...

I have been struggling with constipation for about ten days now. I have had BM's, but not anything remarkable. I just had a small BM, but now I am having some very weird and painful cramping that is not like any gas pains I have ever felt before, they are higher and stabbing....

Anyone experienced this? Should I call my dr.?

Thanks. T.

Hey, don't worry about "too much info.," k? That's what we're here for... believe me, I know that I personally, and I know I speak for many Sisters, have shared all KINDS of very detailed info....much more than what you said!
That said, I have always had problems with BM's, my whole life...and it's been nuts, lately, I've had lots of G.I. issues...but before my hyst., I had lots of constipation. You said that what you are feeling doesn't feel like gas pain-it's higher? Is it on one side only? Does it start in the front or back and radiate, or is it all around? Are you on any new medications? I'm asking these questions out of curiosity-I can not give medical advice, of course. It can never hurt to call your Dr.'s office and speak to a nurse or tech. That is what we pay them the big bucks for. Especially if you are in discomfort, I would give them a buzz-and certainly since this is different pain from what you usually experience. Please let me know what you find out and how you are feeling. I hope you get to feeling better soon, Sister.

Thanks Clynlarson:
I called dr. nurse and she suggested that I take colace every day for a few days until I "totally evacuate" that the problem may be that there is still some stools that are trapped between gas pockets...sounds fun doesn't it? So...between moving this weekend, I will be dealing with this...

Thanks. T

I have some probs in that category also. The old tried and true Correctal seems to work for me overnight. Hope the pain goes away for ya.

Another silly question

I take something called Bentyl for the "cramping" that I have sometimes, unfortunately, it is a prescription...have you tried Gas X? Gas X saved my life after all of my surgeries, because I had SUCH bad gas may want to pick some of that up when you get the Colace. Best of luck to you, please take it easy-to the best of your ability-this weekend.
